Disputes arise for many different reasons, are usually stressful and can be costly. It is important to get the right advice and support at an early stage.
What can we DO to help you?
We have a Dispute Resolution Team made up of very experienced contentious law specialists, all of whom have many years experience. This means that we can assist you with almost any dispute that you may become involved in. We can also, where required, draw on the expertise of other lawyers in the firm and instruct Counsel (a barrister) to perform certain specialist functions (most typically Court advocacy).
Our aim is to help our clients achieve a satisfactory resolution to the dispute in as quick, painless and cost effective a way as possible by providing a friendly, efficient and professional service.
The overwhelming majority of disputes do not go to a trial, even if a Court claim is started. This is because settlement is reached either before or during Court proceedings by means of alternative dispute resolution such as:
• Various types of negotiation
• Early neutral evaluation
• Expert determination
We will advise you on the combined use of different methods of alternative dispute resolution depending upon the circumstances of the case, tactical and financial considerations.
The more common types of dispute that we deal with on a day-to-day basis are:
It can be daunting to become involved in a dispute with an aggressive opponent or a large organisation, and most people are concerned about the prospect of having to attend Court and the costs of litigation. We have the skills and expertise to ensure that, if Court proceedings are necessary, your case will be prepared and presented to your best advantage. We will also discuss with you the different options for funding your case.
